Re: Solfeggio frequencies

I'll add one more thing... Soundcard clocks (oscillators) are sometimes "off". i.e. the 44.1kHz sample rate isn't exactly 44.1kHz. No clock is perfect but I've heard of clocks being off by as much as 3%. If the clock is off, the pitch and tempo are off proportionally. Usually nobody notices except m...

Re: Solfeggio frequencies

They are giving you the difference from A=440 and you can calculate a percentage. You don't really need those alternate A-note tunings unless you are tuning an instrument. In GoldWave you want the percentage difference from the nearest standard note. For example - For 174Hz they give you A = 438.48....

Re: Solfeggio frequencies

in other words all my music at 440Hz convert it to 528hz. A = 440Hz simply the normal tuning standard. Musical Notes & Frequencies . It's arbitrary but it means everybody can agree on what an 'A" is (and all of the other notes can be derived from there) and it allows a band/orchestra to play in-tun...

Re: FreeDB is no more

It looks like GoldWave will have to find a solution or alternative. Wasn't the database for freedb open-source in the licensing AND UPKEEP? I smell a suit from someone eventually. Neither MAGIX or Gracenote should have proprietary rights to and OVER the database at least up to a certain date. I beli...

Re: FreeDB is no more

I don't use GoldWave for ripping so I haven't tried this, but try: Tool -> CD Reader -> Options -> CD Database Options -> Server and enter freedb.dbpoweramp.com . FreedB is open source so it's a matter of finding a copy of the database, and then hopefully there will be a new designated "official" or...

Re: Feature request

I don't have any oversize WAV files but I think the problem is that you can't make GoldWave ignore the WAV file header. I've tried renaming a WAV file to .RAW, .SND .TXT, .123, etc., and I can't open it as raw data. It always opens normally without asking for the format details (sample rate, bit dep...

Re: How to change Hz and kbps

You'd have to use a lossy format such as MP3.

With uncompressed formats everything is proportional... If you double the sample rate (kHz) you double the bytes-per-second and the bits-per-second (kbps), etc. (There are 8 bits in a byte.)

Re: Noise gate issues

Have you tried a shorter release time?

Have you tried a lower threshold? You may have to do it in sections using different thresholds in different parts of the recording.

Have you tried "regular" Noise Reduction? (It may work better or it may result in undesirable artifacts.)

Do Flac Stereo 24 bit to Mono 24 bit PCM (selected only channel 1 on GUI) reduces level be 6dB Mixing is done by summation so it's common to reduce both channels by -6dB (50%) before mixing to mono to prevent clipping. If one channel is silent, muted, or excluded, the result will be 6db lower. A...

Re: How to change Hz and kbps

Effect -> Resample -> 8000Hz.

NOTE - For uncompressed files you don't have to manually set the bitrate (kbps):
16-bits x 8000 samples per second x 1 channel = 128 kilobits per second.
16-bits x 44,100 samples per second x 1 channel = 705.6 kbps

Re: How do I get started in simple plugin development?

There is an SDK but this post says it's not up to date. P.S. I hate to mention the "competition" but Audacity has Nyquist for making simple plug-ins and since Audacity is open source so you should be able to program anything you want . Or, I'm sure there is tons of information about making VST effec...

Re: A couple feature suggestions for Goldwave

If you are a scientist, I understand that MATLAB (or the MATLAB clones) can read WAV files and do FFT and almost any math or statistics that you can think of.

I'm just a GoldWave user, but GoldWave is an audio program. ;)
